Smokin' BMW R9T Elegant Bastard 12 January 15
This BMW R nineT build is the creation of Maarteen Timmer and Rob Van Der Heijden of Smokin' Motorcycles: The "Elegant Bastard"
The Elegant Bastard BMW R NineT is a rough gentlemans ride; elegant and refined but unpolished and loud on the other hand. The comfortable ride with a feel of heritage has been translated into a ride to experience freedom in a sportive and sensational way!
The Elegant Bastard is designed for the BMW Soul Fuel Challenge 2014 organized by BMW Motorrad Netherlands. This design made it to the top 3 of the competition and public voting resulted in a victory with more than 70% of the votes!
The Elegant reflects the quality and craftmanship you´ll see in this motorcycle, like the handmade aluminium tank and the rough antelope leather seat.
The quality of BMW has been translated into the overall look and feel of the Elegant Bastard with the CNC milled subframe and the carbon fiber engine covers. The BMW design language led to an asymmetrical speedometer, positoned next to the CNC milled upper triple tree with the clean look flat handlebar on top!
